Pocket Watch Repair & Restoration Services
We specialize in the repair and restoration of antique and fusee, American and European pocket watches. We have thousands of watch movements and parts in stock and will custom manufacture obsolete and unobtainable parts. Even an older timepiece can look and work like new again. Restoring an older pocket watch to its original condition requires more attention than a routine service. Over the years some movement parts might have become worn or damaged and need replacement. When these parts are discontinued and no longer available from the manufacturers, we have the ability to make them manually.
All watch movements are cleaned. Watch movements are meticulously restored both mechanically and aesthetically and electronically timed. Cases are polished, repaired, and cleaned. Broken or missing crystals replaced and yes, even “Bulls-Eye” crystals are available. Dials are cleaned, and/or refinished. Hands are refinished or made from scratch if missing or beyond repair. Screws and other steel parts are polished, refinished and even re-blued if necessary. Missing or badly damaged parts are replaced, most can even be made from scratch if needed. Plates and bridges are refinished to be as close to original as possible in appearance. Fusee chains are repaired, tightened and refinished. Worn bushings and damaged jewels are replaced. Worn or broken pivots are refinished or replaced.
The restoration of antique, fusee and high grade pocket watches has been our specialty for years. Our restoration services are for SERIOUS collectors only, as the cost and time required can be substantial. We have restored many fine watches by some of the most famous makers, including Elgin, Leroy, Jacot, Joseph Johnson, William Brown, and others. If you are interested in our services please call us to set up an appointment to discuss your watch and our capabilities to help you proceed with confidence and assurance. We always enjoy talking about old timepieces, so call us anytime.
